From Calorie & Pulse Technologies:
NutriTiming is the only iPhone and iPod touch program providing a revolutionary way to track your Within Day Energy Balancea system used by Olympic, professional and other elite athletes from all over the world. Developed by top sports nutritionist, Dr. Dan Benardot, the within-day energy balance strategy is now available to the general public. Through NutriTiming, you can now achieve REAL TIME, individualized calorie and activity guidance that will enhance your weight loss, nutrition, body composition, and performance goals. Energy balance has traditionally been assessed over periods of 24 hours, but this 24-hour assessment fails to consider the fluctuations in energy balance that occur on an hourly basis, which can influence your bodys response to calories. Measuring within-day energy balance in real time resolves this problem. By staying within the prescribed energy balance boundaries (+ or 400 calories during the day), you can target fat loss and spare muscle mass, improve athletic performance, avoid low blood sugar that can make you feel less alert and too hungry, and improve your attention span and sense of well-being. NutriTiming helps you match on an hourly basis your actual need for calories with your present rate of calorie usage. The right amount at the right time means a leaner you with NutriTiming.
